    These things always happen in 3's. It's scary.

    I started keeping track at http://www.celebritydeathpool.com that summer a few years ago when the celebs were dropping like flies.

    And DW, since we discussed "Murphy Brown" in another thread, it's interesting to note that McGavin won an emmy for acting in the role of Murphy's father.

    Another great one lost, indeed.

    I think we've gone well beyond the "happens in threes" thing lately. We seem to be losing 3 a week sometimes. RIP Mr. Mr. McGavin. You entertained us well over the years.
